Precision Heliparts (PHP), a Precision Aviation Group (PAG) Announces Key Hires for Lafayette, LA and Brisbane, AU Facilities
Atlanta, GA – February 28, 2013 — Atlanta-based Precision Aviation Group (PAG), a leading provider of products and value-added services to the Worldwide Aerospace and Defense industries announces the hiring of 3 key personnel for its new PHP facilities in Lafayette, Louisiana and Brisbane, Australia.
Hired to lead sales efforts in Lafayette is Keith Stringer, Director of Sales, PHP-LA. Prior to joining PHP Stringer served as the Purchasing Manager at ERA Aviation in Lake Charles, LA. Jordan Webber has been appointed Director of Sales, PHP-AU. He was formerly the Commercial Sales Manager at Sikorsky Helitech in Brisbane. Joining Webber in the Brisbane facility is Chris Slade, Director of Operations, PHP-AU. Slade also makes this move to PHP-AU from Sikorsky Helitech, where he served as the Commercial Materials Manager. Webber and Slade will lead the company’s sales efforts in the Australasia Region.
“The new Lafayette and Brisbane facilities have been part of PAG’s strategic plan to better support our customer base by placing sales and service operations closer to where they operate their aircraft. However, we did not want to open the facilities until we had the right people hired, and I don’t think we could have done any better” said David Mast, PAG President and CEO. “The key to our successful growth is to make consistent planned capital investments in facilities, capabilities, and inventory. However, at the core of all of those investments are great people. The employees of PAG are truly the foundation of our success.”
